An Honest Review

“Hi there, and welcome to my makeup vlog! Today I will be reviewing the Colours of the Sky eyeshadow pallet from…”


Laura looked away from her camera to her five year old daughter, who walked proudly into the room holding a pallet and an eyeshadow brush. “I did my makeup today!”

She had indeed put on makeup; her eyelids were entirely covered in one single shade of bright blue eyeshadow.

“Great job, honey!”

“Can I review this pallet for your vlog?”

Laura lifted her up into her lap. “Sure.”

“This eyeshadow is impossibly blue, and I love it!”

This story was inspired by Carrot Ranch’s March 27 2023 prompt: In 99 words (no more, no less), write a story about something impossibly blue. You can go with sky or any other object. What impact does the color have on the setting or characters? Does it lead to action or create a pause? Go where the prompt leads!

  1. Gorgeous! Back in the day, I used to wear a lot of blue eyeshadow. Eyeshadow always matched what I was wearing. Now that’s too much effort, one shade will do. I use blue eyeliner though – to match my blue eyes. Loved this story. The young protangonist is perfectly drawn.
